This month chef Ignacio Leon, of Paxia fame, added another restaurant to Denver’s food scene.
Latigo — which sits just next to Coors Field at 2229 Blake St. — follows its now-closed forbear as an eatery specializing in high-end but traditional Mexican fare.
Menu items include Leon family recipes like molcajetes, a dish from central Mexico, dating back to Aztecs, with stewed tomatoes, garlic, jalapeños and onions served hot in a mortar and pestle made from volcanic rock used to grind grains, corn and to prepare salsas and guacamole.
It also includes more familiar dishes like enchiladas, fajitas and carnitas.
